But Alabama was on Probation

We continue to hear that Alabama was on probation and scholarship reductions in 2002-2003 and that is why their numbers are so high.

We'll keep this brief and to the point.  If Alabama's numbers are so high because they were on scholarship reductions, then what were the schools listed underneath them on, double secret scholarship reductions?  We searched the Internet and couldn't find where the NCAA dropped the hammer on any of these schools for recruiting violations.  If you guys find something we missed let us know.
